The Wicked Tinkers will be the featured band on the Levitt AMP Series concert on Aug. 17, 2019. They will perform after the opening act, Ciana, at around 8:00 p.m. Ciana performs at 7:00 p.m.
Since 1995, the Wicked Tinkers have been playing ancient rhythms and forgotten sounds—things that might have been heard hundreds of years ago at a Scottish wedding or Highland riding party—but have reimagined the music for the twenty-first century. The aim to create a sound that is both “ancient and hauntingly familiar” with use of bagpipes, tribal drums, didgeridoos, and Bronze-Age Irish horns paired with a modern, rock-and-roll energy; their music will transport you back in time and get an audience of their feet with a raw, primal, and exciting sound.
